Chris was very personable from the beginning and with his background as a chef it gave us a unique and informative experience as he not only understands the cultural background of many of the local restaurants but personally knows the families that run them and their stories. All in all this was a five star experience and we highly recommend it.

We loved all the food and history, but the mahi mahi dish at Kaya Island Eats was probably one of the top 3 fish dishes and possibly the best one I have ever eaten. When we come to the Keys, all my husband and I eat is seafood and fish. This dish was delicious and will be remembered. We will also be back to eat at Kaya Island eats!!!!!
